Title: Radio Reconnaissance in Penetration Testing – All Your RF Are Belong to Us – Matt Neely, SecureState
Tired of boring old pentests where the only wireless traffic you see if 802.11 and maybe a little Bluetooth? With this amazing new invention, the radio, your eavesdropping options can be multiplied! Come to this talk to learn techniques for discovering, monitoring and exploiting a wide array of radio traffic with real world examples illustrating how these techniques have been used to gather information on a target’s physical security, personnel and standard operating procedures.
Matt’s BIO: Matt Neely (CISSP, CTGA, GCIH and GCWN) is the Profiling Team Manager at SecureState, a Cleveland, Ohio based security consulting company. At SecureState Matt leads a team of consultants who perform traditional penetration tests, physical penetration tests, web application security reviews and wireless security assessments. His research interests include the convergence of physical and logical security, lock and lock picking, cryptography and all things wireless. Matt is also a host on the Security Justice podcast.
Title: Embedded Strings Obfuscation – Tyler Hudak, General Electric
Strings embedded in malware can reveal a lot of useful information to analysts. However, attackers are using a number of different techniques to obfuscate these strings to make analysis more difficult. This talk will discuss the various techniques used and how analysts can overcome them.
Tyler’s BIO: Raised under the watchful eyes of the elves of Rivendell, Tyler was trained in the ancient art of malware analysis. During the battle for Middle Earth against Sauron, Tyler worked in secrecy to reverse engineer the Great Virus of Sarumon, thus giving the good races of Middle Earth an advantage over the evil forces of Sauron. He currently works for GE.
